Slow Cooker Rump Roast Marsala

Sunday, February 27, 2022
Slow Cooker Rump Roast Marsala is a fork-tender flavorful beef that makes its own delicious gravy slow-cooked to perfection.

We love rump roast (also referred to as bottom round) it's the triangular cut from the upper part of the round or the hindquarters and an extremely lean cut of beef and when cooked in a slow cooker it comes out very tender.

I have used a chuck, roast, and London broil, and they both are great substitutes for a rump roast/bottom round for flavor however chuck roast is much more full of fat.

Slow cooking is the secret to making this beef so moist and tender and the Marsala wine and our seasoning add the perfect flavor.

This delicious roast is perfect for weeknight dinners.

When I have a busy day ahead I just pop the roast in the slow cooker with all the ingredients and let this amazing appliance do its magic.

Adding a few vegetables in the crockpot with the roast will be a complete meal and ready when you get home from your busy day.

Our family loves the roast with garlic mashed potatoes and corn on the cob, those are their favorite sides so I tend to make those more often to keep them happy.

A gourmet tasting meal and there is hardly any work involved.

The gravy it makes is perfect for topping any style potato you make and especially with our Steakhouse Baked Potatoes.

Easy Roast Beef and Delicious



Roast Beef slow-cooked is the best way to ensure fork-tender meat.


This smells absolutely fantastic as it slowly cooks through the day and the aroma when you walk in the door is mouth-watering.


The leftovers, if there are any, are perfect for making submarine sandwiches with au jus, or even adding some cheese to make Philadelphia-style cheesesteaks.


I have always loved the taste of Marsala but if you're not a big wine fan, just use beef broth.


Everyone will love the gravy it makes so it won't hurt to add some delicious yeast rolls to dunk in the gravy.


I love using my slow cooker, it's one of my favorite appliances when I don't want to heat the house up in the summertime.
